Titan HiTours the escorted tours specialist, has unveiled its 2011 programme of group holidays around the world, featuring a wide range of individually-themed itineraries that encompasses every corner of the globe. The brochure introduces 12 brand new tours (including Titan’s first ever ‘triple-centre’ and ‘stay put’ holiday) alongside some exciting cruise, multi-centre and no-fly options, making this one of the most comprehensive and varied programmes that the company has ever launched.
Two new tours to the Americas start in North America with the 10-day Southern Musical Medley with Nashville and Memphis (from £1,495 per person). This inspired itinerary follows in the footsteps of the Deep South’s noted musical greats and includes visits to Elvis Presley’s Graceland mansion; his birthplace in Tupelo; and the spiritual home of Country & Western music, the Grand Ole Opry. For a unique memento of the trip each group of guests has the opportunity to record their own ‘hit’ record in a working recording studio on a visit to the Alabama Hall of Fame. On the other American continent, meanwhile, the 13-day Best of Argentina (with Rio de Janeiro) itinerary combines the very best of two of the world’s most vibrant cities. Costing from £3,395 per person, the holiday takes in the natural wonders of Iguaçu Falls; the incredible beauty of Patagonia’s glaciers; and the lively cultures of these two passionately Latin cityscapes. Both prices include flights, transfers, accommodation, various excursions and the VIP Home Departure Service (which collects clients from - and returns them to - their own front door). Some meals are also included in the Best of Argentina itinerary (none are included in Southern Musical Medley).
Other developments in the 2011 Worldwide brochure include a considerable expansion of holidays to Africa and the Middle East, with a total of four new itineraries to the region. Of particular interest will be the exploration of Syria’s Cultural Heritage, as this is the first time that the Middle Eastern country has appeared in a Titan HiTours programme. This inclusive itinerary includes visits to all of Syria’s five UNESCO World Heritage Sites, not least the imposing Crusader fort at Krak des Chevaliers, the extensive Roman ruins at Palmyra and the ancient hearts of Damascus and Aleppo - two of the world’s oldest continuously-occupied cities.
